I love God, and I love people. These loves guide my life as a pastor. I love serving a smaller church and am committed to keeping our community relational.
In my role as pastor, preaching brings me joy. Studying the Bible each week – while listening for the ways this ancient text speaks to our current lives and circumstances – leads to revelation, inspiration and an ever-changing life. Presenting what I find and then discussing it with you on Sunday mornings is the highlight of my week.
Despite being a self-professed “homebody,” God has led me to serve our ministry partners in Bukoba, Tanzania. We work year-round with COSAD to bring about sustainable community development through self-sustaining agricultural and medical projects, and I lead trips to Bukoba almost every summer.
It is a great honor and privilege to serve as pastor of Mercy Commons Covenant Church. However, I believe the ground is level at the foot of the cross and on the road to heaven, so my position means I’m called, not “better than.”
I hope to grow with you as a follower of Christ within our community of faith.
